As For Me And My House
The main theme of the novel is our need to trust God and to have faith. We need to make God a priority in our lives. We do not serve a God only to be taken out on Sundays and then packed away for six days. We serve a God who wants to be a part of our whole lives. Trusting God is not like trusting man. God will never let you down.
The novel shows the danger that money and feeling comfortable can have on our relationship with God. “After Nathan began making more money in life, my prayers slowed and my reliance on God dwindles too.” No-one ever wakes up and decides to move away from God. “It’s a slow fade.” As our lives become more comfortable, our reliance on God may diminishes as we prefer to lean on ourselves and our money and possessions.
